On the second day of the Mt. Kailash Kora and Charan Sparsh, I walk towards the north face of Mt. Kailash from Dirapuk, to pay my respects. Uncertain weather conditions and altitude sickness render some excitement as its not clear whether we will succeed at touching its surface that day.
Capturing my journey, a beginning in several ways, to Mt. Kailash. Mt.Kailash's parikrama is an aspirational journey for many Buddhists, Hindus and Jains with origins from the Indian subcontinent. This, is the first of a multi-part blog of my parikrama and charan sparsh of this sacred mountain.
